What You Can Expect
Walk through downtown Nassau to visit three other local businesses, where you'll chat with the proprietors about their craft as you sample savory snacks, rum cocktails and rum-infused candies. Taste the local favorite snack, conch fritters, and a special Bahamian guava dessert.
Listen to your guide's entertaining stories about the island's rum-running history as you walk past historical buildings in town — all of which played a part in the bootlegging industry.
End up at John Watling's Distillery on Buena Vista Estate. Tour the distillery to learn about the rum-making process and the legend of 17th-century pirate John Watling himself.
Return to your starting point in plenty of time to catch your departing ship.
Did the Rum and Food Walking Tour on Saturday, 5/14/16 with Lindsey as the tour guide. Great experience with a wonderful tour guide. Learned alot of interesting facts as we visited sites off the beaten path. I will look for similar tours on my next vacation. A real treat.
This tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. It was very interesting to hear about things regarding the history of Nassau and the rum industry which we'd have never known about if we hadn't taken the tour. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Nassau.
Orchid was a great tour guide, very pleasant and friendly. She told us about the interesting history not only about rum and the food but the history of Bahamas. I would do this tour again definitely.
My husband and I saw this trip rated on Trip Advisor and thought it would be a great way to see different points of interest in Nassau during our cruise and of course drink rum. We were very impressed with Orchid and had an amazing time walking through the downtown area. She is an excellent tour guide and has an obvious passion and love for sharing her island. Would definitely take more tours through this company.
Our tour guide was EXCELLENT! She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. She found each of us at the starting location and offered to take us back to that location if we wanted, even though the ending location was at the distillery. The tour included a lot of historical information and a few of the local sites. Not recommended for someone with mobility issues, but you do NOT have to be in good shape to take this tour and enjoy it. The tastings, cocktails, and candies were all great and fun to learn about.
The tour was amazing! We would definitely recommend taking this tour
Amazing. We really enjoyed the tour and got to know the history of the island. Orchid was very knowledgeable and she gave very good information about the local area and people.
The tour was so much fun. We learned a lot about the island and our tour guide was the best!
Had a great time. Jason was very friendly and informative.
